Are you the owner of a brainy chicken who can only relax and lay an egg while perusing A Remembrance of Things Past? Well, Nieman Marcus is here to cater to the needs of even the fussiest of hens. The Heritage Hen Mini Farm ($100,000) is a "multilevel dwelling" that features a nesting room, broody room, living room, chandelier, and even a library. (The library comes stocked with chicken and gardening books, not Proust.) Geez, says Sarah Miller at Grist. "Of all the things you could have given to the chickens who inhabit this manse," Nieman Marcus has decided that "what chickens really want to do is read."
